The IceMen were formerly known as the Muskegon Fury (1992-2008), and Muskegon Lumberjacks (2008-2010). The current IceMen franchise replaced the original Evansville IceMen (2008-2010) that were a part of the All American Hockey League

The team folded in 2010, as IceMen owner Ron Geary purchased the Muskegon Lumberjacks (1992-2010) of the International Hockey League and moved the team to Evansville, taking on the name Evansville IceMen. In May 2012 the team moved from CHL to ECHL. On November 16, 2015, Evansville IceMen owner Ron Geary wrote a letter to the fans that the team operating lease with the Ford Center was ending after the 2015-16 season. Despite attempts to negotiate a lease extension with the city since February 2015, the two parties had not yet come to an agreement on new terms. The City of Evansville and Geary were unable to come to an agreement. Geary then agreed to terms with the city of Owensboro, Kentucky, to relocate the team to the Owensboro Sportscenter if the IceMen were forced to leave the Ford Center. On February 8, 2016, the City of Evansville announced that it had secured an expansion team in the Southern Professional Hockey League to play at the Ford Center beginning in the 2016-17 season, thus displacing the IceMen franchise from Evansville. Finally, on March 14, the IceMen and the ECHL announced the relocation of franchise to Owensboro had been approved but the franchise would have to go dormant for the 2016-17 season to allow time for the necessary renovations on the Owensboro Sportscenter to be completed. However, by September 2016, Geary still had not taken over management of the Sportscenter and the City of Owensboro announced a different management company would take over the Sportscenter on October 1. On the September 30 deadline, Geary sent a letter to mayor Ron Payne stating he would not be purchasing the Sportscenter because of too much cost to convert and refurbish the arena.

In January 2017, Geary sold part of the franchise to an ownership group based out of Jacksonville, Florida, and the relocation was approved by the ECHL on February 8, 2017. Geary remained as the primary owner. The team affiliated with the Winnipeg Jets (NHL) and the Manitoba Moose (AHL)
